You can save money, reduce pollution, and help the environment by taking care of your Phoenix, Arizona, home’s plumbing and conserving water. You can also keep yourself and your family comfortable and increase the value of your home. Save money by looking for leaks, using faucet aerators, and checking your water heater.
Look for Leaks
Leaks in your faucets, toilets, or pipes waste water, attract pests, and encourage biological growth. Even a small issue can reduce your home’s indoor air quality and lead to expensive water damage. Have drippy faucets or leaking pipes repaired by a professional before the damage becomes severe. If the pipes in your home are more than a few decades old, you may want to consider replacing them before they wear out to prevent problems.
Use Faucet Aerators
Faucet aerators add air to your water to keep the pressure high while lowering your utility bills. They’re inexpensive and easy to install, and they can help extend your plumbing system’s life by reducing wear and tear. Low-flow toilets and showerheads are also available, and efficient new fixtures can increase the value of your home. Keep in mind that massaging sprays or accessories that simulate rain use more water than other showerheads.
Check Your Water Heater
Hot water is essential for daily tasks like washing your dishes and taking a shower. A minor problem with your water heater could eventually shorten its life, waste energy, or lead to expensive damage. You should have a professional drain your tank once per year to prevent sediment buildup. An expert from Canyon State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing can also check for other problems, like a malfunctioning pilot light, before your family’s comfort is affected.
